    Mac OS X "Mountain Lion"

    The next-gen OS X desktop is coming this Summer:

    http://www.apple.com/macosx/mountain-lion/

    I dunno 'bout yous guys, but it's looking pretty sharp to me. Time to ditch Growl in favor of the Notification Center, and Messages looks like a viable, cross-device solution for chatting and FaceTime-ing (which my family does a whole bunch of).

    Gotta see how Reminders stacks up against the likes of Cultured Code's Things -- probably not a total replacement, but some integration would be nice (until Things can get their cloud-sync system out of beta).

    I know it's only a teaser from Apple at this point, but from the screenshots on the page linked above, how do I log out using the GUI? It looks like the user account logout menu item was replaced with the Notifications thing.

    As always, I can't wait. I know there will be some that rail against the iOS-inspired look and feel, and others that may exclaim, "I don't want my Mac to work like my iPad!", but I, for one, welcome our App Store-inspired overlords.

    The only complaint I have so far is the name. Mountain lion = cougar = puma.
    And 10.1 was Puma, so 10.8 = 10.1?
    Other than that, looks cool

    You forgot the Panther!

    10.1 = Puma
    10.3 = Panther
    now, 10.8 = Mountain Lion

    Apple apparently hasn't used the Cougar name, yet, so that's still available.
    Serendipity is a lucky guess !

    The one thing that me wonder is on the Mountain Lion splash page doesn't even show a Mac Pro. Looks to me like Apple has shown it is being dropped.

    All they show are laptop/portable devices (and a Thunderbolt monitor) -- the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, specifically.

    I wouldn't take that to mean that they're dropping the Mac mini or iMac, though.

    Let us not forget Catamount. It is also available.

    1. Ocelot
    2. Lynx
    3. Bobcat

    Those are just the ones I think of off the top of my head. Plus think about extinct big cats like the sabertooth.
